This spoken-word recording made circa late October 1888 is believed to be the oldest surviving recording of Thomas Edison's voice. The informal message whimsically describes an imagined trip "around the world on the phonograph," by Cunard steamer from New York City to Liverpool, through Europe and Asia, giving specific ships, railroads, cities, and points of interest en route.
